For those of you who attended, THANK YOU!! We hope you found the time and conversation meaningful. If you could not attend, please view the recording. You can skip about 25 minutes when the Learning Communities spend some independent time together.

Vanguardians of the Galaxy Hoodie

You asked, we answered! The hoodie is once again available for purchase. One very important thing is the sizing. The hoodies run small, so ORDER UP! Need a size that's not there? Email me!

Roving Reporter

Roving Reporter - Personalized Learning in Music
Today I visited Megan Endicott at Dolvin ES to learn more about personalized learning in the music classroom. Even it you're not a music teacher, it shares valuable information about managing multiple levels, working with limited devices, and more.

Next week I will make two stops - Hapeville ES and River Eves ES! We won't air live, but instead we will start to schedule a regular viewing time. Stay tuned!
